LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Male-only backfire

- The Washington Times - Thursday, October 4, 2012

Saudi Arabia may have discovered an ingenious and painless way to deal with its own "trouble with the curve." In an effort to minimize the importance, value and influence of women in Saudi society, Ikea has airbrushed all women out of its Saudi catalog, leaving only men in it ("Ikea deleted women from Saudi version of catalogue," Web, Monday).

The only problem with this, from a Saudi perspective at least, is that outsiders may get the false impression that Saudi Arabia is a male-only, homosexual society.
